I saw a photograph of a friend’s new born grandbaby, only a few hours old. I was enamored with the little nose and mouth, the shape of the face and from the resemblance to my friend it was obvious this was their offspring.
I was just enjoying this photo and thinking grandma thoughts when I saw the baby’s bellybutton. The baby is so new in this picture that the umbilical cord is still fresh and plump, even though it was clamped by the hospital.
It struck me that we as Christians are fed through our bellies! As I looked at that baby’s umbilical cord I suddenly had a quick vision and saw a RIVER of God’s Power and Provision, Grace and Kingdom Revelation Knowledge flowing through His heavenly umbilical cord into us!
Did that baby do anything at all to receive the Life-Giving nutrients from its mother?
The baby just was and Life flowed into her! She was simply a RECEIVER!!
In fact, she doesn’t even know she was a receiver of Life, she just took it!
EVERYTHING with God is a picture of Kingdom Life!
This is a WORD for you! God is sending His Grace, Knowledge and Power — along with EVERYTHING ELSE YOU NEED FOR THIS NEW SEASON — directly to you through His mighty umbilical cord straight into your heart!
There is nothing that you need to DO!!! Just be a Receiver! He is feeding you everything that you need to live and THRIVE in this next season! You need do nothing more!
Just TAKE IT! Open up your hands, your eyes, your ears and most of all your HEART and take it all in! Everything that you need is being FED to you by our Lord, with no effort on your part!
Say AMEN and RECEIVE IT!!!
